Today's Fast Sunday--
Which is, for those who arent sure.....
When the Primary kids sing all their songs REALLY FAST !
At least that's how "Sister Jeanes" the Crazy Song lady in Primary used to do it!
I got released from my primary chorister calling a couple of months ago.
The "stated" reason given by those in "authority" was....so I could be more available for Marky cause he's often sick on Sundays, among all the other days.
But I have suspicions about that given reason.
I may have been a little too......oh,.....irreverent in my methods !
This dawned on me when I was asked to sub for the "new" chorister a couple of weeks ago.
As soon as i got up to .."do my thing" with the kids.......one of the leaders in the back of the room quietly got up and slithered over to the door and non-chalantly closed it.
Somehow I have a knack for raising the Decibel level with those kids !
We used to sing..."Primary children sang as they RAN and Ran and Ran and Ran".....all around the room !
Sang Extra FAST on Fast Sunday.
Changed the words on "The Lord commanded Nephi to go and get the Plates"...to...: "The Lord commanded Nephi to go and get the Knives and Forks" !
And of course, the "Missionary Stew Song", otherwise known as "I hope they call me on a Mission".......
This was re-named, as the last line of the songs sings...."JUST LIKE MISSIONARY STEW".....Not "JUST LIKE MISSIONARIES DO" !
And other Hair raising, spirit boosting , sensible improvements.
All I wanted the kids to do was...feel the spirit ! AND LOTS OF IT !
As my brother Lee would say....
IM NOT SORRY !
